The Calipari Foundation invests in communities. These communities are not limited by geography — they can also be educational, social, and spiritual in nature. The foundation’s purpose is to improve the quality of life both in and through these communities, with a particular heart for enriching the lives of children.
Organized in 2012, The Calipari Foundation, Inc. (TCF), is a 501(c)(3) public charity. John and Ellen Calipari formed the foundation to facilitate their involvement in charitable causes throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
In addition to raising funds to give to nonprofit organizations, TCF hopes to raise the public’s level of awareness regarding philanthropy. Toward that end, one of the goals of the foundation is to encourage members of Kentucky communities—and members of the basketball community—to become involved in, support charitable activity.
